Life. I really liked it. My 7 year old freaked out for the first time and he loves scary movies.

I wasn't expecting the ending until about five minutes before it happened.

Gremlins 2 from 1990, man this was so much better than the first. They went full Looney Tunes with this one and you felt like you were watching a cartoon in live action. The first Gremlins didn't know whether it wanted to be a horror movie or a comedy, plus it had a very slow start, but the sequel was crazy and hilarious.

I like Gremlins 2, it didn't take itself seriously, but the 1st one was more of a horror comedy.

There are 2 versions of Gremlins 2 actually, there one version had a scene where film gets all messed up, and Hulk Hogan shows up, the other version was the video of a VHS getting messed up, and John Wayne shows up.

I saw the Hulk Hogan version.

Just watched "Innerspace" from 1987, I seriously thought that was Harrison Ford for most of the movie, but it was Dennis Quaid, who looks and even sounds almost exactly like him. Goddamn they literally have the same voice.

In some scenes their faces looked nearly identical too, it felt like I was watching some Harrison Ford movie I didn't know about. Either way the movie was excellent, a forgot sci-fi comedy classic of the 80's.

I just watched the Russian "Treasure Planet" from 1982, and boy was it a RIDE. Weird character design and animation, Long John Silver as first mate instead of cook, "Phillipe" instead of Jim yet Silver and Smollett remain intact with names, environmentalism straight out of left field in the last eight minutes of the movie, nobody surviving, a song getting left in untranslated from Russian.

And that's just some of it. It's an experience of tripe to behold.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit, still a fun movie to this day. Why did this movie never get a sequel or remake after all these years? It's such a great concept to mix cartoons with live action yet you rarely ever see it done.

Saw Cars 3 today with the wife and my oldest. It wasn't as bad as I thought. Very Rocky IV.

Power Rangers (2017). The characters were surprisingly well-written; all the CGI stuff at the end wasn't as good as the team-building.

The campy aspects were subdued, but still intact. It was also nice to see them actually training and working together toward their goals instead of randomly knowing how to fight in the pilot episode of a series.

Gangs of New York with Leonardo Dicaprio. Very good movie, especially the actor playing the villain.

It's amazing how violent the world was when New York was at war with itself.

Watched beverly hills ninja last night. Hadn't seen it since the 90's. Chris Farley reminds me of kung fu panda. I think if he was still alive he would be competing for work with Jack Black.

Finally watched Yoga Hosers on Netflix.

And........the movie is even worse than the trailers made it to be. Kevin Smith clearly wasn't even trying with this. There's 0 percent horror, it's a dark comedy that's horrendously self-deprecating! A TeenNick or SNL skit was more entertaining than this.

I finally saw Wonder Woman, then Spidey and Guardians 2 in the last 12 days or so...

WW was great but then Gal Gadot... nuff said really...
Spidey was perfect except for the tweaks to certain characters historical background for the sake of tweaking them... I did like the bad guy thats Miles' uncle, or will be if Peter is going to be older bedore Miles shows up...
Guardians 2 was great. The theater laughed at all the right points. A few things were utterly predictable but it was well worth the extra drive to the only theater still showing it and the extra cost to see it there...

I will hopefully get them all on bluray once released for futher viewing. Only thing I woukd change with WW was cut the future version book ends... No Batman or Justice League. Let it rest as its own movie. Granted it doesn't tie in at all otherwise but it does jump the time of BvS... It could just have been neat and tidy without the Batfleck.

Watched all 4 Toxic Avenger films and wow they are the definition of so bad its good, I'm not a fan of b-movies normally but I had fun watching them, especially part I, the sequels never hit the right notes but were serviceable.

Watched Spider-Man. Good flick.

Spoiler:
I'm still not sure it I liked the suit having a.i. Is that a comics thing? I don't keep up with Marvel all that much.
